The Course

The latest addition to The Cliffs’ diverse offering of championship golf courses, the Mountain Park course was named one of GOLF Magazine’s Best New Courses of 2013. Step onto this Gary Player Signature Course and experience how it folds delicately into the topography of the land around it. Zig-zag along the banks of the North Saluda River with mountain ridgelines as the backdrop. Enjoy the feel of diamond zoysia grass for the fairways, MiniVerde™ Ultra Dwarf Bermudagrass for the greens, and native grasses and landscape materials throughout the course — all representative of Player's passion for conservation. And experience the challenge of 13 acres of bunkering throughout the course.

“I believe that The Cliffs members and guests are in for a nice surprise. Our design at Mountain Park is very different than any other course in The Cliffs communities.” – GARY PLAYER

The Designer and Architect

Gary Player, recognized around the world as the Black Knight, has won 165 tournaments globally during his five-decade career. He aims for excellence equally in his course design, with a passion for fitness and perfection. Mountain Park is an inviting and walkable design, and The Cliffs' members have embraced Gary’s fitness mantra. Gary Player Design has created more than 300 courses across five continents, with a commitment to creating courses that every level of golfer can play and that are sensitive to local ecology. 

Jeff Lawrence, senior course designer for Gary Player Designs, was the lead architect for Mountain Park. Jeff is an accomplished and well-known golf course architect, with a career that has included course design for Jack Nicklaus and Tom Fazio and across the U.S. and in Mexico, Italy, Honduras and Bulgaria. 

The Challenge

The Joust is an exciting Par 5-3-4-5 finish to the Mountain Park golf course, inspired by architect and golf legend Gary Player. It offers an individual risk-and-reward challenge to the golfer who chooses to accept it. Aiming for a reachable par 4 and with well-executed shots, brave players can experience an exhilarating finish to their game.

The Club

Drop by the new Mountain Park Cabin after a round for an easygoing afternoon or evening in rustic, casual surroundings. Like the course, which is filled with handcrafted tee markers and wooden benches, the Cabin’s rustic looks lend it a rough and tumble feel. Just beneath the surface, there’s a well-appointed retail shop, The Cliffs Storehouse at Mountain Park.
